The reviews made me want to try this reastaurant in Saumur; the praise was entirely justfied. Elgenat interior and tableware, with food and wines to match, and most reasonable prices,The
Gaspacho de petits pois et asperges,cigarette de maquereau
was memorable.

A well set out dining area with 20 covers unless you are unfortunate to get a table for two just outside the toilet. Nice fresh flower decorations on each table add an air of elegance to proceedings. The set menu is good value but very restricted. The a la carte menu can be quite expensive.Food is of excellent quality and beautifully presented. Service is efficient and very professional. A good wine list with some excellent local wines adds to the overall pleasure of a visit here. Best to book I think.

We didn't have reservations, but we waited for about 1/2 hour to get in at 7:30 pm. We're glad we did - terrific food and wonderful service. The price was right, too!

Second visit this holiday. First meal 70euros for two but we did not like the fish. However last night was excellent. Main course was haddock. We got there at 7.30 best time for good service as its only a husband and wife affair. By end only two tables left. A bargain meal with an excellent savarennes wine. We are going again on Friday.

Superb menu and service, excellent decor and outside seating is also nice. Lovley touches - little snacks at start of meal. The house aperitif was fantastic. The formula was excellent with all food excellently cooked and presented. Great wine selection. Pleasant service. Clearly the best restaurant we went to in the area. Would definitely go back. Owners obviously care deeply about the food, and providing an excellent dining experience.
